I'm not sure whether our HOA rules allow chickens or not (probably not, since they don't even allow basketball hoops - not that most people pay attention). Not a lot of things are enforced by the HOA, and since my dad was on the board for a couple of years he also knows they really couldn't afford to do anything about it if they DID want to enforce anything. So, I'm wondering - if they somehow magically got the money and hired a lawyer, could they really do anything to us? I think they can put a lien on our house if we wanted to sell it (just until we were in compliance with the rules, which would happen as soon as we moved and took our chickens with us). I don't know of any other consequences, legally. Anyone else?
